Friendship Card Video Tutorial Featuring Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Stamp Set

This video tutorial will show you how to create this friendship card featuring Stampin' Up!'s Cute Fruit stamp set, Playing With Patterns DSP and the Happy dies

Hey there friends! I don’t know about you, but one of the things I love the most about summer is all the fruit!

Here in Ontario, Canada, fruit tends to be pretty sparse in the fall/winter months – apples, oranges, bananas and grapes. Let me tell you, it can get pretty boring eating the same old fruits month after month.

But once spring hits, and then summer, our fruit options explode!

Do you know what’s almost as much fun as eating fruit?

Creating cards with fruit! 😂

So let me tell you, I was super excited when I saw Stampin’ Up!’s new Cute Fruit stamp set.

Check it out….

I love that it has so many different fruit options: pineapple, watermelon, banana and citrus.

I also love that they included three different face options. I mean really, how can you not love that moustache LOL?

And of course the greetings. If you’ve read many of my other posts then you’ll know I have a real weakness for mixed font greetings.

What’s nice is that this is a super affordable stamp set. It’s a photopolymer set and it’s only $22 CAN. You can see it in the Stampin’ Up! online store here.

I decided to create a fun and relatively easy card using the pineapple. And I combined it with a few other products.

How To Make the Stampin’ Up! Cute Fruit Friendship Card

First off, let me show you a close up of the main part of the card.

Step-By-Step Written Directions

Here’s a step-by-step on how I made this card.

Step 1. Ink the pineapple bottom with Daffodil Delight Classic ink. Using a sponge dauber, add some Crushed Curry Classic ink along the edges of the stamp. Stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White CS.

Step 2. Stamp a little face onto your pineapple using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Step 3. Ink the pineapple top with Granny Green Classic ink. Using a sponge dauber, add some Garden Green Classic ink along the outer edges of the stamp. Stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White CS.

Step 4. Fussy cut the pineapple top and bottom. Set aside.

Step 5. Cut a ¾” x 3″ strip of patterned paper from the pattern shown in the picture above (from the Playing With Patterns DSP collection). Set aside.

Step 6. Die cut several flag banners out of Calypso Coral CS using the flag banner die from the Happy die collection.

Step 7. Stick the patterned paper strip onto a 3 ⅞” x 5 ⅛” piece of Whisper White CS. The right edge of the patterned paper should be aligned with the right edge of the Whisper  White CS piece. The bottom edge of the patterned paper piece should be about ¾” up from the bottom edge of the Whisper White CS panel.

Step 8. Trim one section of the banner and stick it to the CS panel so that it looks like it’s hanging from the patterned paper strip (see photo for reference).

Step 9. Stick a longer section of the banner directly across the patterned paper strip (a little below the centre). The banner should extend beyond both edges of the patterned paper strip (see photo for reference).

Step 10. Stick the pineapple to the CS panel, so that the bottom slightly overlaps the patterned paper strip using liquid glue.

Step 11. Stamp your greeting onto a scrap of Whisper White CS. Trim the greeting into three pieces: “i couldn’t ask,” “for,” and “a sweeter friend.” Using mini Stampin’ Dimensionals, stick the greeting pieces onto the patterned paper strip, slightly overlapping the bottom of the pineapple (see picture for reference).

Step 12. Center and stick your CS panel to the front of a 4 ¼” x 5 ½” Whisper White notecard.

Step 13. Embellish with a few sequins from the Artistry Blooms Sequin Collection. You’re done!
